Most holiday “gift guides” are mostly bogus – lists of items that a store needs to move, are at a particular price point or have a high profit margin.
My gift guide is the opposite. These are things that I don’t sell (also FYI, I have never participated in an affiliate program anywhere, either). These are things I have used to death and really like. I think you will like them, too.
For the most part, they are inexpensive items that are worth far more than their price tag suggests.
I did a gift guide last year (which is still valid) and am in the middle of writing one for 2014. Both are on my blog at Popular Woodworking Magazine here. Check it out if you have family members who want to get you something for the shop.
Me? I just asked for beer.
